Symptoms may include burning pain at the sole of the foot that's worse when standing or during activity. Other symptoms include numbness or tingling at the base of the foot.

Treatment includes avoiding certain activities. It also may include orthotics and anti-inflammatory medications. In rare cases, steroid injections can reduce inflammation.
